The NFL Thread:

Grin and bear it
Well, the Bills look like they're for real, while the Dream Team continues to collapse.

Wonder how long it'll take for Reid to get fired.

Well, barring something incredibly stupid, the Packers have just gone 5-0. What a game.

EDIT: It's official. Packers make their seventh 5-0 start.

I don't like the 49ers maybe?tongue

Please put me out of my misery now. Stupid mistakes and no chemistry is taking the Eagles down the toilet.

Who else thinks the NFC East is becoming the NFC West? When the best team in your division is being led by Rex Grossman, your division has serious problems.

[up][up]Hey, Redskins haven't been on the top of the division in a while. I don't care if we had a chimpanzee as our quarterback; we're 3-1. Let us have our fun for a little bit longer.

Although with us playing Philly next week and Carolina after that, we could be 5-1.
well. Thats the fastest drive for the Lions all season.

1 play. 88 yards running. Touchdown.

Bears going "what the fuck just happened?"

and the bears continue to disintegrate. they managed to false start a punt for chrissake.

5-0 Lions. Dear God. Theyre relevant again. :D

Gunpla is amazing!
Detroit is sad Tigers lost but then became super giddy when we won. I've never seen this state get so excited before.

We needed this.

[up]

whats truly scary about the Lions is half of their stars of the squad are newbies. if theyre this good now, when they get experience under theior belt, the might be the next Green Bay Packers.

Dang, I want a ticket to the New Years' game now. I probably won't be able to get one, but I still want one.

Grin and bear it
Goes to show you just how much the crowd affected the Bears: they had nine false start penalties.

Nine.

Tell you what, if I'm a team and heading to Detroit for a primetime game, I wouldn't want to go anymore.

[up][up]Heck, even Calvin Johnson's only in his fourth year (which I thought he had been in for longer). Add him, and Suh and Fairly and Best and Stafford (if he can stay healthy), and the Lions are in it for the long haul.

Yeah. Long as they can keep the team healthy, we might be watching the next team that nobody in their right mind wants to be on the business end of. Best and megatron are ridiculously hard to stop, and Stafford's showing signs of becoming a great quarterback. and their defense is just cruel. they only need 4 men to get a pass rush going. Thats insane. If you can constantly keep the qb running for his life with only 4 men, that means you also have room to cover everywhere.

[up][up]

The real insanity is gonna be the Thanksgiving Day game. Lions v Packers.

Looking over the rest of the Lions' schedule:

  • 10/16 - San Fransisco
  • 10/23 - Atlanta
  • 10/30 - At Denver
  • Bye Week
  • 11/13 - At Chicago
  • 11/20 - Carolina
  • 11/24 - Green Bay
  • 12/4 - At New Orleans
  • 12/11 - Minnesota
  • 12/18 - At Oakland
  • 12/24 - San Diego
  • 1/1 - At Green Bay

Yeesh, some very tough games still on the schedule. The next two games are (thankfully) at home.

Those two GB games (Thanksgiving and New Years) could very well decide home-field advantage.

[up][up] Yeah, but I live in Green Bay. Or at least, I'll be there during New Years.

Gunpla is amazing!
I think the reason the Bears got all those false starts was because Detroit was so freaking loud

Grin and bear it
There were like 65K+ fans last night (most ever for a home game, I think). And it was Monday Night. And it was da Bears.

Also, this coming in over the wires: It's officially "Tebow Time" in Denver.
[up][up]

pretty much. Its why nobody in their right mind will want to play in detroit anytime soon. Its too loud to even hear your quarterback's snap count, which is perfectly fine for the Lions.
Going Forth!
After what I saw Monday Night, it looks like playing in Detroit will be the "new" playing in Seattle. That 12th man can really help out.

Seriously though Chicago, NINE false start penalties? Really?

How about them Bills, huh? 4-1 and on top of the AFC East for now, right? [lol]

On the Colts being 0-5: they may be bad, but they aren't the Rams. They have no line whatsoever.

Expect the Rams to get the top pick and trade it.

And meanwhile, my Jets are looking more and more like the Keystone Kops. Seriously, when Rex Grossman is outperforming the alleged "Sanchize", we got problems.

Wonder how long it'll take for Reid to get fired.
Sadly, TOO long. He's had some awesome Philadelphia and just can't finish. Unfortunately, it looks like Eagles management will wait for Michael Vick to get his arms ripped out before it dawns on them that Reid has no clue what he's doing anymore, if he ever did.
It was an honor

...To Indy so they can get Andrew Luck.

If the Eagles don't make the playoffs, Reid's getting fired. I'm calling it now.

[up] Rick Reilly also suggested that. He said that if they traded to the Colts, they would get their top three picks and another player in exchange.

A funny thing I noticed: the Chiefs had the worst point differential in the league (minus -77) but have a decent shot of finishing above .500. They are 2-3 right now and the rest of their schedule is rather easy.
